Conrad Murray

Appeals Manslaughter Conviction

12/2/2011 3:28 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1002_cm_EX_appeal
Dr. Conrad Murray has just filed an appeal, challenging his conviction for involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson ... TMZ has learned.

Murray filed the document in pro per -- which means he's representing himself instead of using a lawyer.

On the portion of the document where a lawyer will usually state his or her firm's contact information -- Murray lists "Men's Central Jail" ... and includes his booking number.

While he is representing himself, Murray is still communicating with one of the lawyers who repped him in the manslaughter trial, Nareg Gourjian.

update_bar
Gourjian tells TMZ ... "This case presents a gold mine of issues for any appellate lawyer.  Dr. Murray is confident that the Court of Appeal will vindicate him."

DON'T FORGET THAT THE "QUACK" STILL OWE CHILD SUPPORT TO NENITA MALIBIRAN!!!!


THE FULL AMOUNT WHILE HE'S IN JAIL!!!!!


CHECK THIS BIT OF INFORMATION OUT:


The noncustodial parent is in jail. Can I still get support?


Unless the parent in jail has other assets, such as a house or a car, or other income, child support will be nearly impossible to collect. A noncustodial parent who goes to jail should contact the local child support agency to modify the child support order. Otherwise, past-due child support will continue to grow and the noncustodial parent will be responsible for paying past-due support when released, plus interest.

lol.. Human Nature..

well..we're the sober ones.. Connie certainly isn't one.. nor his lame defense!

well.. Connie's Life is essentially over.. the life he knew or the Life he assumed he'll get from MJ OVER!
He can try all the tricks in the book for appeal-- but we know.. that's all for nothing!

oH LET HIM LIVE IN HOPE.. Nareg said..HE'S SUCH A POSITIVE PERSON? ha.. how about whacked! why he'll even be more let down when he's debunked by the appealatte court>

with his huge EGO? he'll suffer more! this guy is soo deluded & stupid assuming he's so clever--why he'll lose at every turn.

ALL HIS MED LICENSES WILL BE REVOKED--IF NOT ALREADY.'HE'S FLAT OUT BROKE! I bet his own defense assumed they had a chance to be 'stars' like Johnny Cochran why they took his case to start with.They never once entertained the notion-- they'll lose! oh well..

Connie with no more huge cheques to impress the 'hoes'.. he won't be getting much any either..LOLOLOL..NOW THAT'LL REALLY HURT!

oh.. as for MJ's fortune.. oh people make such a big deal about the ATV-Beatles catalogue.. true it's worth a fortune. that was a great investment for MJ.. BUT WHAT'S REALLY MAKING THE MJ ESTATE SO DAMN RICH IS COMING FROM MJ'S OWN MUSIC.. MIJAC.. as he pretty much owns 75-85% of it..that's really where the money is.. MJJ'S MUSIC!

It is his right to appeal. I didn'*****ch much of the trial and I could notice strange things, mostly on defense part though. Like Mr. Walgren pulling a chart prepared by the star witness Dr. White, eventually showing MJs demerol use. Mr. Walgren went through the data one by one and most of it turned out to be false. There was some lame excuse by Dr. White. It gave impression for lying as much as possible, on Murray and team part.

Hoping against hope... what's he gonna do, huh? If he is as bad an attorney as he is a doctor he is doomed. But I'm sure he has all the time in the world to waste now. Also, check out this latest exploitation of MJ's image. http://jacksontributefragrances.blogspot.com

LOL.. oh we'll let Connie get on with his schemes.. trying to overturn his conviction/sentencing-- IT WON'T DO A DAMN THING ANYWAY!

AH. there's good cause & reasons Judge Pastor didn't allow their c*c*eyed defense.. & here's Connie trying t o use it again??

DO I HEAR. STUPID?!

ay! can't pity him as she's so amoral & unrepentant-- there's nothing about him that one can see any semblance of repentance. SO LET HIM GET ON W ITH IT.. HE'LL BE KNOCKING HIMSELF OUT.. BEATRING HIS HEAD AGAINST THE JAIL WALLS IN NO TIME!

NOT OUR PROBLEM.. what's more.. it'll only give more grounds for the DA to upgrade his conviction/sentencing t o the STATE PEN.. & for him to serve the full 4 years..

JUS*****CH.. IT'S IN THE CARDS.. I can 'smell' it coming..

Wow, I had No Idea!! Thank You so very much for that information! It would seem that Klein is a lot dirtier than I had orginally thought! Have to say, this is going to be extremely interesting! I would love nothing more than to see Klein get kicked off of the Board of the FDA! But like Bev (and others) I too would love to see Klein in jail right along side of Murray. But I would be somewhat content if he looses his Medical License - I just don't feel that - that in itself is enough for Klein. We will have to wait and see that the Medical Board and the Ajppeals Court says and does with regards to him. You are a wealth of information - I am so glad that you shared with me! Thank You again! Love, Hugs & God's Blessin's

fhello HN & Mac The Knife:


i just happened to think. Michael had a ton of Allergies to numereous things as well as many drugs. Since Murray did not keep any records and Klein did - I'll bet you find a list of those Allergies in Klein's records. But how could Murray even contemplate treating MJ without that tidbit of vital information? And write it down? God knows - you need to have a record of Drug Allergies (as well as other Allergies) in order to treat someone! Shows you another Screw Up that Murray made!

EXCLUSIVE DO***ENTS: 'Bankrupt' Michael Jackson Doctor Worth $7.5 Million -- Read The Papers


Michael Jackson's former friend and dermatologist, Arnold Klein, filed for bankruptcy earlier this year, and despite his previous claims of minimal assets, RadarOnline.com has discovered the doctor is worth millions and we've got the do***ents to prove it!


EXCLUSIVE DO***ENTS: Dr. Arnold Klein's Amended Bankruptcy Filing


In the original bankruptcy petition filed in January, Dr. Klein claimed to have $3.5 million in debt, and estimated his assets to be worth $0 - $50,000.


However, newly filed do***ents obtained exclusively by RadarOnline.com reveal Dr. Klein actually has millions of dollars in assets - $7,563,60...0 to be exact!


PHOTOS: Stage Shots of Michael Jackson Performing


Listed among his assets are three California properties: one in Los Angeles, another in Laguna Beach and yet another in Palm Springs.


According to court do***ents, Klein's Los Angeles home -- which was gutted by fire in November 2010 -- is worth $9 million and holds $20,000 worth of gym equipment. The home was also said to be in default in October 2010, and Klein lost $1.5 million in artwork, furniture, and other items in the fire, which was covered by insurance.


PHOTOS: Inside Michael Jackson's House


Dr. Klein's Laguna Beach home is valued at $12 million and the home in Palm Springs at $1.9 million.


What is in those homes may surprise you.


The Beverly Hills dermatologist is an avid art collector with hundreds of pieces totaling a value of $7.2 million!


PHOTOS: Michael Jackson's Kids And Elizabeth Taylor


The collection includes Baccarat, Waterford and Lalique crystal as well as various pieces by Picasso, Gaugin, Cindy Sherman, David Hockney, bronzes by Robert Graham, photographs by Herb Ritts and numerous pieces by Andy Warhol, including the famed Marilyn Monroe - and more.


In addition to his homes and extensive art collection, Dr. Klein owns many vehicles including a $170,000 2001 Ferrari 360... Modena, a $130,000 2005 Bentley GT, a $36,000 2008 Cadillac Escalade, He also owns a $4,000 2006 Honda Pilot and a $2,500 2002 Chrysler Gem.

And despite his stated income of $30,000 a month, Dr. Klein has acquired a great deal of debt.


The doctor owes almost $3 million to City National Bank, $100,000 to the drug company Allergen, $157,000 to the IRS, $80,000 to American Express and another $80,000 to Bank of America. The do***ents claim Dr. Klein has paid $30,000 to American Express and $47,000 to a law firm.

I'm really looking forward to seeing and hearing David Walgren chew up this liar. I was hoping Dr Death would take the stand. How thick is this quack? Obviously NOOOO brain whatsoever. The weird little baldy lawyer should advise him to shut up, do the sentence and move on...well and truly away from medicine of course. He's not safe to be allowed near people.

Dr. Conrad Murray Seeing Chaplain In Jail


After being sentenced to the maximum four years in jail for his role in Michael Jackson’s death, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned Dr. Conrad Murray has been seeking hope from the jail chaplain.


According to an insider, Dr. Murray was sitting next to Celebrity Rehab alum British producer/writer Duncan Roy last week in the Los Angeles County Jail when he summoned the chaplain to discuss his future.


PHOTOS: Key Players In The Trial Of Dr. Conrad Murray

“Tears welled up in his eyes as he sat across from the chaplain,” the source exclusively told RadarOnline.com. “The chaplain told him, ‘You need hope.’”


Dr. Murray and Roy — who is being held on $35,000 bail for a felony attempted extortion charge — are both being segregated from the rest of the jail because of their “celebrity” status.

I SEE THAT REALITY HAVE FINALLY SET IN!!!!


THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING WHETHER YOU ARE GOING TO ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY OR CONTINUE TO BLAME OTHERS!!!!


YOU HAVE A LOT OF DEEP SOUL SEARCHING TO DO!!!!


HAVING HOPE IS NOT THE ANSWER BUT REPENTANCE FOR YOUR SINFUL WAYS!!!

Conrad Murray is in complete denial for killing Michael Jackson. He maybe needs some psycho therapy sessions, any therapists want a crack at him?

Murray filed the do***ent in pro per -- which means he's representing himself instead of using a lawyer.
__________________________________________________________
A favorite slogan of the legal profession is that anyone who attempts to defend himself in a court of law "has a fool for a client."

It describes Murray perfectly........

hey Mac!


Yeah, that is what I was thinking when I read it. Hope? You have to got be Jjoking! Your right, Murray is trying every trick in the book, to get Sympathy and that from everyone - including his so-called Crocidile tears - Oh Boo Hoo Hoo! Poor Me, Pity Me - I am an Innocent man! My Backside!!! And I have news for the Qusckster - Judge Pastor already called him out on what he truly is and David Walgren showed the world what he truly is using his own Interviews and Do***entary to prove it! Now if Murray wants any hope at all - he had better hope that for one they don't release him within 4 years! Because somewhere - someone will hunt him down and take his ugly butt out! And he had better hope that they don;t put him in General Population (even though that is where he deserves to be - because he is not a Celeb and should not be treated as such!) because then he would get what is coming to him in General Population! So if he is looking for Hope - he can start there! Still do not feel any sympathy towards that A Hole in the slightest!
